Have Your Best Vacation Ever in San Diego

It’s no secret that it’s been a tough few years for planning a vacation. But in 2022, travel is back with a vengeance. So if you’ve been feeling the itch to take a sabbatical from reality, there’s never been a better time. According to a recent poll on Expedia.com, this year’s biggest travel trend is “no-regrets” escapes; i.e., getaways where travelers are embracing the “go big” mindset to truly ensure unforgettable experiences. Are you ready to take the best vacation ever? Here’s how to plan your G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Trips) holiday to sunny San Diego.

Plainly put: San Diego is one of the greatest beach cities in the world. With over 70 miles of coastline (including several picturesque inland bays and peninsula marinas), “America’s Finest City” can boast more oceanfront than you can shake a surfboard at. And thanks to Pacific Terrace’s enviable location overlooking one of the area’s most scenic, postcard-perfect beaches, you’re never far from serenity when you book your stay here.  


Indulge in Decadent Dining

San Diego’s well-deserved reputation as a “foodie” paradise only seems to grow with each passing year. Thanks to our melting pot of cultures, you’re never far from a magnificent meal. Regardless of what fine-dining delicacies you’re craving — whether Mediterranean, Asian, Italian, or our famous best-in-the-U.S. Mexican — San Diego has your back. You can even take a dinner cruise during your visit! Check out our recent guide to San Diego’s Michelin-recognized restaurants if you’re looking for some idea of where to start your food adventure.


Drive in Style

In many ways, America’s “car culture” is indelibly tied to southern California. Our rolling hills, sunny oceanfront and inviting cityscapes just beg to be explored from behind the wheel of something sporty and fast, or plush and extravagant. Thankfully, the area’s available vehicle rental outlets understand the inclination to go big. For instance, San Diego Prestige Rentals offers a deep range of imports, convertibles, and ultra-luxe rides so you can prowl the streets with undeniable flair. Just be prepared to draw attention.


Oceanfront Adventures

San Diego has come up with countless amazing ways to enjoy the water. From boating to fishing, parasailing to surfing, there’s no end to the ways locals and visitors alike can savor the sea. For the sake of inspo: have you been dreaming of a little al fresco dining? The folks at Hidden Picnics can set you up with sophistication. How about a beach bonfire, complete with S’mores? The Beach Fire Guy is your go-to. And if you’ve always dreamed of learning to ride the waves, our Surf’s Up Package comes complete with surfing lessons. 


Relax With Sips and Snacks

Whether you’re interested in Happy Hour, poolside light bites or in-room dining, we offer sips and snacks you’re sure to enjoy, all served with a stunning ocean view.
